“Today’s announcement comes following the sacrifices and collective efforts of our community and to our heroes working on the front lines,” artistic director Kevin Tobin said in a news release Thursday.

“The words of encouragement from sponsors, musicians, funders, and volunteers over the past year have kept us motivated and inspired and we are so excited to celebrate the sights and sounds of the festival once again!”

Tobin said they are planning a live music experience featuring local and Canadian acts that place an emphasis on safety.
